So I took Maisie to the vet on Monday thinking that cast is coming off, I'll be able to see what's going on under there and hoped that she would be getting a smaller model. Nope. Apparently this cast is in such good shape she's got it for another week. Monday we'll reassess, Tuesday a wee sedation and they'll change it. I don't think she cares- she motors just as she always has... she knocks on doors with it. Makes me laugh, except in the night when she rolls over and hits me in the face with it. My vet bills are never ending. She's worth it.
